Laura Sheehan, Director, Owner & Teacher-

I look forward to being part of your child’s growth, learning and adventures here at Stay & Play.

I graduated from UNH with a Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Child Studies.  I have over 20 years of experience working with children and families.  My experience includes working with toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children in New Hampshire and Virginia.

I currently live in Durham with my husband, Jay and dog, Sookie.  When I am not at Stay & Play I enjoy sailing, reading, and cooking a variety of meals.

Lindsay Chamberlain, Teacher-

Working with children is my passion and something I highly enjoy. Watching them learn and grow is rewarding. I look forward to meeting and working with your children.

I have had a lot of experience with children. I took early childhood courses in high school, worked at a preschool as a teachers aid, and I was a nanny for 2 years.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and fiancé, and my dog Bella, along with my rabbit Camo. I enjoy four wheeling, fishing, playing volleyball, and being outdoors.

Rory Heath, Teacher

I am very pleased to be a part of the Stay & Play team and I look forward to getting to know all the children here.
I have worked with children since I was 14 when I was a peer mentor at my high school. I decided to further my education in 2013 and attended Early Childhood Education courses at Granite State College. I have lived in Wolfeboro New Hampshire most of my life while working at the local elementary school and child care center. I moved to Somersworth NH in April 2018 and have been at Stay & Play since August.
When I’m not working here, catch me on the air at my worldwide internet radio stations CB305 and KYDZ.
